The new commandments according to "Rethinking Life and Death." --If you must take human life, take responsibility for the consequences of your decisions. --All human life is not of equal worth; treat beings in accordance to the ethical situation at hand. --Respect a person's desire to live or die. A profound and provocative work, "Rethinking Life and Death," in the tradition of Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World," examines the ethical dilemmas that confront us as we near the twenty-first century.
